Book Summary (extracted from Goodreads)

Meet FBI Agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong.
She’s cursed. He’s damned. Together, they make one hell of a team.

Emma Monroe is a Siren, cursed by the gods and bound to earth to atone for an ancient failure. She’s had many names and many lives, but only one mission: redemption. Now that she works missing persons cases for the FBI, it could be just a rescue away. Unless her new partner leads her astray.

Special Agent Zack Armstrong just transferred into the San Diego Field Office. He’s a werewolf, doing his best to beat back the demons from his dark and dangerous past. As a former Black Ops sniper, he’s taken enough lives. Now he’s doing penance by saving them.

Emma and Zack’s very first case draws them deep into the realm of the paranormal, and forces them to use their own supernatural abilities. But that leaves each of them vulnerable, and there are lines partners should not cross. As secrets are revealed and more women go missing, one thing becomes clear: as they race to save the victims, Emma and Zack risk losing themselves.

Rating: 4/5

I am always a huge fan of urban fantasy books (vampires are my all time favorite) so the title being CURSED, have definitely caught my eyes when I was browsing my neighborhood library. I was expecting a vampire looking for a mate and seeking redemption. But clearly, I was wrong.

I must admit I was reserved after reading the summary of the book; Sirens was never a group of supernaturals that I had read often. This means that Emma is an entirely new “subject matter”. But after reading the book, I enjoyed it and will be looking for more from this series.

The book was a well-balanced one; filled with sufficient actions and also explore the romance between Emma and Zack.

The plot thickens as the book progresses and I liked the revelation, as though all the tiny pieces of puzzles that were provided through the book fits together and makes so much sense.

The only downside was that I wasn’t aware that before Cursed, there is a prequel book named Captured.

Captured is the very first book that shows how Emma and Zack crossed paths and shows the start of the mutual affection.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to read Captured first before reading Cursed. As such, I wasn’t able to connect as much with the book as I wanted to; especially on the romance between Emma and Zack.

However, the book is definitely a great one. I would love to get my heads on Captured as well as the other books from this series.
